New E85-Compatible Spin-On Dispenser Filters from PetroClear® Promote Fuel System Integrity

PetroClear®, a longtime trusted manufacturer of fuel-dispensing filters, has introduced two 10-micron particulate-removing spin-on dispenser filters ­– the 40510PE and 40510PE-AD ­– engineered for compatibility with E85 fuel.
